See, this is the war I didn't want to start again. Unless I'm thinking of a discussion on a different list -- I was sure in the whole Verizon "spam measures hurting other servers" thread, the whole blocking w/o IN PTR records had come up, with people saying they were on hosting where they couldn't change PTR records, and the clients who couldn't get mail from small offices with Exchange servers on DSL lines where the ISP hadn't configured reverse DNS . Then there was the comment on how reverse DNS was meaningless, and did you still run identd ? Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong list. If AOL does it, in a way the question is moot. At least those of us who DO know how to configure DNS can get some clients from the ones who don't. ========================================================== Chris Candreva -- [email protected] -- (914) 967-7816 WestNet Internet Services of Westchester http://www.westnet.com/
